What the forum means to me....
So I have to say right away, that Cliff told dancinbears something last night in chatzy that made her smile. He said, ‘no matter what, I got your back’… and it made this bear go to sleep feeling very safe & secure. :)
So Imagine how wonderful it made me feel when I read today’s threads and see that it wasn’t just Cliff, but SO MANY of you, who were there for me.
Ian, where do I even begin to try and describe to you how your post made me feel? Even now, the sappy female in me could almost cry. That you were worried enough about what my name being on the forum could possibly mean, that you had to check again, and that you put your own name out there for everyone to see…..how do I even say thank you for the way that made me feel? :)
Max C. how do I tell you, without sounding like a sappy female, how proud I was of you at how mature you are for your age, and how lucky you are going to make some girl one day?
SDH how do I tell you how glad I am that you aren’t going anywhere, or at least not leaving completely? I thought your ‘Come together’ thread was the best thread ever, and I really appreciated reading what everyone wrote.
Cush, who always makes me smile and has a smile for me, how do I tell you how it made me feel when I read your post where you got very angry, because it’s so not like you. And you got angry like that for me. :)
Dire how do I even begin to tell you how hard I laughed that you were SCREAMING to get the mods attention! :) even after I e-mailed you that I wanted you to try and stay calm and ignore everything.
Boys where do I even start to let you know what this forum means to me….
Sometimes I wonder what all the lurkers must really be thinking? Those that don’t ever get the chance to get to know you guys in chatzy or thru e-mail the way I have. They can’t possibly understand.
I got away from the scene like everybody else, because I had a family and children, and a hubby who wasn’t a deadhead. But I played my tapes til they wouldn’t play anymore. And then my daughter found me deadhook…. And that led me here. I have a bumper sticker that says “Born Again Deadhead”. But only another Born Again Deadhead would understand it. Everybody else says, “what’s that mean?” I lurked here at LMA for so long. And most of us know the road that’s led me here has not been paved smooth. But I said once a while ago that I’ve never posted anything I was ashamed of owning up to, and I’m still not. I care deeply about this forum, but more importantly the people that are here. And Grokking with everyone has become something that brings joy to me.
We have a joke at chatzy, that sometimes when we GROK all weekend we have ‘no life’… but I’ve been known to say back…. I DO have a life, you’re just part of it. :)
On Friday nite, at Ratdog, right when NFA was ending, and the crowd started really getting into the chant, the volume was so loud!, I just closed my eyes and chanted and clapped! And for a minute, just a minute, I wasn’t at the beacon theater… I was at Giant’s Stadium, Brenden Burne Arena, The garden….I WAS THERE!!! Just like you understand the Born Again bumper sticker, you understand THAT!! That’s what the forum means to me. That’s what everybody here means to me.
Peace ~Dancin’ :)
